A Little Bit of Hope

According to several sources, Scott Lynch’s third book, A Republic of Thieves, is going to be released in Spring 2010.

Yes.

I’m currently reading Brandon Sanderson’s newest, Warbreaker, and good golly molly, if the ending is anything like the middle, this is a book that will vault onto my shelf of favorite books.  It actually reminds me a bit of Lynch’s writing, which is why I’m talking about it now.  The snarky sense of humor is nearly the same, and some of the characters could well exist within Lynch’s world.  This “wheel of time’ thing?  Sanderson really really needs to finish that, so he can stop wasting his creative juices on it.  And I say that as a fan of Robert Jordan’s writing. I think Jordan was terrific, but Sanderson could really be a writer for the ages.
